Nike's latest React-based runner still doesn't have a confirmed release date, but that hasn't stopped social media users from throwing around early "sneaker of the year" claims for the new model.

First highlighted as part of an upcoming fall '18 collaboration with Undercover, the React Element 87 will also drop in a selection of general release colorways. The good news is that these inline styles retain many of the distinct features seen on the collab versions, albeit without some of the Undercover flair and unique color combinations.

@gc911 has shared up-close looks at two black and sail-based styles which reveal new details including the addition of a cork insole, which should pair comfortably with the thick React cushioning.

Undercover's collab won't arrive until later this year, but readers won't have to wait long to pick up these React Element 87 colorways, both of which are expected to release this summer.

UPDATE (06/06): Official images of the black React Element 87 have surfaced along with an expected release date of Thursday, June 14. The general release iteration of the model retails for $160.

UPDATE (06/07): Today brings a better look at the "Sail" React Element 87, which is also expected to drop next week on Thursday, June 14 for $160.
